I know a lot of Friday the 13th fans especially like part 6, but it’s how we got to this point which reveals some key aspects. First, let’s backtrack a little a bit, (no I’m not going to a full timeline) I believe we can all agree The Final Chapter (part 4) was the preverbal…

Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) – By Baron Craze

An important item to understand about this movie is the filmmakers didn’t concern themselves with continuity too much, they wanted the plot and storyline quickly done and a simple scenario, a group of folks in middle of nowhere are stalked, slashed, stabbed, and slaughtered.

In addition, the movie clearly has influence with countless filmmakers, exploring interesting themes…
